Such an amazing person. I was once in Milan for a couple of days and stayed in his house. He was so nice to me. I will always remember his gentle smile and kindness. I am too young to remember the rebbe but I always felt that Rabbi Garelik was the closest you could get to the real deal. Baruch Dayen Haemes

As a young Bochur Rabbi Garelik once farbrengnd with us all night.
One of his reoccurring themes was a descriptive vision of how when a young Bochur says shema at night he should say reading from a full size siddur.
It was presented so romantically that many of us were driven to recreate that vision.

A giant of a Chosid. A larger then life Human. Humble. Respectful. Greeted all with a gentle smile and warm greetings. I’ve been fortunate to have been around him many times as he spent time in NY. May he plead for Moshiach to come imminent.

What a great loss. Such an Ish Emes. A great Chossid a great Shliach, and yet greated everyone as if they were on his level.

One of the greatest Chasidim of our time.

In 1957 R’ Gershon Mendel was appointed by the Rebbe to be mashpia at the new yeshiva of TT Lubavitch in Newark NJ (later to become Morristown. I was one of the 12 bochurim of the yeshiva that year. R’ GM got married at the end of the year. It was definitely the best year of my yeshiva life as R’ GM was very mekarev me and many times would wake me in middle of the night for a private farbrengen. 2 other bochurim were also often invited (Rabbi Avrohom Lipsker and Rabbi Pinchus Cunin).
Great loss BDE

If it is anyone of Chassidei Chabad that went to Shamayim recently,it will be Reb Gershon Mendel Z”L who will be Matzliach in interceding on behalf of Klal Yisrael,and ask the Rebbe to beg Hashem to bring an end to this bitter Galus, and finally usher in the Geulah Shleimah Now Mamosh!!
